NYGL? I thought I was up on north Jersey railroads, I don't recall coming across this before - especially one town over from where I used to live.
The NYGL has been there for years most of the century as far as I know. As you can follow the line north, "in Google Maps/Earth" you can see the line turns right going over the Passaic at the Dundee Dam bridge "aka Half Moon Bridge". Next the line goes straight into Garfield on Monroe Street which has three blocks of street trackage operations. The NYGL has to navigate the street trackage to get over to the end of the line at NJTransit's Port Jervis line. A few years ago "8 years or so" the NYGL moved most operations up to Port Jervis NY, it still seems like they are going to keep operations at Passaic as well.
I knew about the line in the middle of Monroe street for about 22 years now I guess I never realized who really owned/used it because I thought it was part of Conrail when they were still around. I'm surprised this eluded me for so long.
